Malin Tillmar is professor of entrepreneurship and carries out research on conditions for entrepreneurship in different types of organisations and contexts. A general theme is in what contexts there is room for entrepreneurship and in what contexts structures – material, social or discursive – are more decisive.

One of Tillman's interests is to highlight entrepreneurship that is characteristic of our time but which does not get much attention in current research. Entrepreneurship and organisational change in emerging markets, in particular in East Africa, are examples of this. Opportunities and conditions for women's enterprising is another focus area. Together with three other researchers she is a member of the national excellence centre EMBLA dealing with questions relating to the research field 'gender and entrepreneurship'. Together, the researchers in the EMBLA group carries out studies of women's enterprising on the countryside, with funding from the Kamprad Family Foundation.

Societal entrepreneurship and entrepreneurial organisation between different sectors within society (private, public, civil society) is another example of a research field in which Tillmar leads a research project. The project is a collaboration between Linnaeus University and the research centre HELIX ( at Linköping University, where Tillmar also works part-time.

Interactive research in collaboration with the surrounding society is another field of research linking the entrepreneurship research led by Tillmar at Linnaeus University with the research being carried out within the frame of HELIX.
